into a woman, who said you know i really like romney when he talks about business because i am a small businesswoman but i really like obama when he talks about women's issues and i wonder if her -- she is sitti at home watching this debate tonight in lakewood, colorado changed her mind or whether it formed her thinking or help her make it up, i don't think it did. >> rose: chuck? >> well i would just say, in baseball terms, because it might be possible the yankees orioles game may be out of the corner of my eye in the middle of a series. >> and exactly, but think of think way, so game one, romney won, game two, had, had ryan won this debate decisively and there is no way to look at it the polls are split on this, some polls give it to biden, on substance abide den controlled this debate, a debate coach may say. >> it was important to the biden campaign hot to lose this debate, a draw, even split, whatever you want, however you want to look at it, it was about getting to the next presidential debate while not keeping -- while sort of lifting up the base a little bit and i think on that
>> rose: welcome to the program. we begin this evening talking about mitt romney's foreign policy speech at b.m.i. earlier today. joining me, tom friedman. >> and i don't think this is the time when americans are looking after two exhausting and incredibly costly wars in the middle east to be making big foreign policy initiatives. now, that said, we do have v the arab spring and things happen on your watch, you've got to respond to them. and for my money what i would like to do is see us really start to rethink our whole way of relating to that part of the world and i would -- if i had my druthers-- i say this half seriously, half tongue in cheek-- i'd like to see arne duncan, secretary of education, be put in charge of middle east policy. because i tnk what really neeto be moving toward this there is a kind of race formula. >> rose: we continue looking at foreign policy issues in the campaign with david sanger of "new york times" and richard haass in the council on foreign relations. >> he basically laid out a conditional foreign policy. saying "look, the era where we give aid t
, it is not enough to achieve the targets we're talking about. what is interesting is, you never ar romney say, no new taxes. you do not hear him say that. >> colby? >> he proposes a 20% across-the- board tax cuts. >> marginal tax rate. >> alternative minimum tax. he proposes tax deductions in real-estate to reduce the deficits. what this means is, over time, $45 llion ovethe next deca. >> we are running short on time. the dough and paul debate. >> this is a deadly earnest. how they can justify raising taxes on the middle-class, who have been buried the last four years. how, in lord's name, can they justify raising their taxes? >> vice-president biden just today said that the middle-class over the last of we were years has been ". ." we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> what did you think, jonathan? >> you talk to a lot of folks in the romney campaign and they say joe biden is the gift that keeps on giving. you saw him pause when he said four years. i think he meant to say the last 10 years, and it came out wrong. this
right in the middle of the crisis governor romney, and are you talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama adminirati. was that reay apprriat right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. but it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting, when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called the share assad a reformer when he was putting guns on his own people. we should always standp fopeace, for democracy, for individual rights and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we quiv kate on our values, when we show that we are fighting our own defense t makes us more weak t projects weakness. when we look weak our adversaries are much more will to -- >> with all due respect that is a bun
're going to buy it when he's talking about legal immigration and not finding a solution. i asked romney, with all due respect the fact that you are not answering this question makes people feel like you are evading it. >> are you going to deport them if you become a president? >> we're not going to round up people around the country and deport them. this is something that's going to have to be worked out by republicans and democrats together. i will lead a program that gets us to a permanent solution as opposed to what was done by the president which with a f monthsbefo the electi he puts in place something which is temporary, which does not solve this issue. i will solve it on a permanent basis consistent with those principles. >> and we still don't get an answer from him. that is one of the things that is hurting republicans. >> how did you come up with the question asking romney if he felt like he was an immigrant. >> are you sure you're not a hispanic? >> i think for political purposes that might have helped me here at the university of miami today. truth is, as you know my dad was
, or a secretly taped fundraising talk. >> here is romney, that secret video taping of the 47%. >> reporter: we found one such bettor, mit sloan school student andre gloria. >> the question that you're really answering when you're placing a bet is: who do you think will win? not who will you vote for? >> reporter: gloria is constantly checking betting markets the world or. >> ill have a nice christmas break, thanks to this, yeah. >> reporter: and though this mba student doesn't play in low- stakes iowa, he's very much like her speculators, says joyce berg. our market traders are very different than the general voting population. they're predominantly male, they're wealthier than the average voter, younger than the average voter, better educated than the average voter. >> reporter: and as we take one last look at the iowa market, the quietest bookie in america, one last question-- how accurate have the polls proved to be? >> so we've gone back over time since the '88 election, looked at over 900 polls and compared the iem prediction to the poll prediction and found that in 75% of the cases the i
with. >> kennedy, the veteran, ignored romney's charge >> mr. romney, let's put the ads aside and talk about health care. let's talk about education. let's talk about training. let's talk about new jobs. let's talk about infrastructure. let's talk about our different vision for massachusetts. that's what the people of massachusetts want to talk about. that's what i think they ought to hear about. >> i think about ten or 15 minutes in, romney began to realize this was not the easy exercise he thought it was going to be. >> reporter: then romney faulterred. the issue was health care. >> i have a plan. i have a position paper on health care. i'm happy to show it to you, senator any lime you would like. >> mr. romney, it isn't a question of showing me your paper. it's a question of showing all of the people in here that are watching this program the paper. they ought to have an opportunity to know. what is the cost of your program? >> i don't have a cost of my program >> you don't have a cost i'm sorry. i don't have... >> what will be the impact of that on the budget >> i to not know the s
for barack obama; kristin for mitt romney. when i'm not here, do you guys ever talk about this stuff? >> usually heatedly and in the car. >> we both have our positions. >> we both have our positions. well we both agree on gay rights and the availability of abortion. but she thinks the government should take more of your money and spread it around and i think the government should keep the hell off my money. >> ifill: we met the stewarts at the annual apple cider festival in the denver suburb of lakewood-- much valued voters both candidates need to win battleground colorado. the president deserves another chance, said 30-year-old glenna. >> i believe he was dealt a difficult hand and in spite of a lot of the negative things that happened, i believe he's doing the very best that he can. and i believe he can continue to do good things for this country. >> ifill: but you like romney? >> well... i like the republican point of view, shall we say. i like less government. i like less governmental interference in our lives. >> ifill: colorado was once a reliably republican state. no more. the
struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> brown: that was a swipe at republican mitt romney and his economic prescriptions. but in southwest virginia, romney fired back that the report does not portray a real recovery. >> the unemployment rate, as you noted, this year has come down very, very slowly. but it's come down, nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. so it looks like unemployment's getting better, but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day the president got elected, why, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> brown: in fact, total employment in september did increase, for the first time since june, by 873,000. but two-thirds of those were people who took part-time jobs when they could
me ask you abt anher parof the world, peter feaver. that is china. we heard governor romney say... he cited again and again the need for the united states to take the lead around the world. he said the u.s. should use its great influence to shape events. then he talked about china's recent assertiveness in the pacific region. what would he have the united states do right now to shape events with china? >> well, there has been some bipartisanship on east asia. so the obama administration after flirting with a dierent policyn 20 returned to an emphasis on asia that had been there in the previous administration. there was an emphasis that involved strengthening our alliances with japan and india and presenting to china a clear choice about we will cooperate if they play by the rules of the game, but we will also demand that they play by the rules of the game. that strategy, which obama came to rather late, has been the strategy that we followed in the past. that's the straty that wl follow inhe future. the problem with president obama's pivot to asia is not that he's focusing on asia. h
